Media Statement

DHAKA, Feb. 11
- The World Bank takes allegations of fraud and corruption impacting Bank-financed projects very seriously.  Once a World Bank investigation is concluded, we share findings with national authorities to determine whether or not there was a violation of national legislations. The status of referral actions is published in INT's annual report. How each referral is handled is always left up to each national authority.
